When is the best time to book a flight to Sydney?

Use this chart to determine the optimal time to book a return flight to Sydney. Price data was last updated on 19 July 2024.

Cheap flights to Sydney aren’t impossible to find, but generally due to the length of travelling involved they won’t ever be bargain prices. That said, if you book your flights to Sydney in advance, at least a few months, you’ll have a better chance of saving money. Flights to Sydney also tend to be cheaper between October and November, although this is only slightly. The best way to save money on your flight tickets when booking your flight is to be flexible on the dates you want to travel. Australia isn’t a cheap country to visit so any savings you can make on your flights will definitely help you out. Also, if you can, try to sit on the left hand side of the plane for stunning views of Sydney as you descend. This is weather dependent but the right hand normally just offers views of the ocean.

Sydney airport overview

Sydney Airport, also referred to as Kingsford-Smith Airport, is situated in the suburb of Mascot, near Botany Bay, approximately 9km (6 miles) from Sydney, Australia’s largest city and main commercial and tourist hub. It is one of the oldest continuously running airports in the world and, having handled just over 35.9 million passengers in 2010, it is Australia’s busiest aerial hub.

Comprising three passenger terminals, namely International Terminal T1 and Domestic Terminals T2 and T3, Sydney Airport is home to a vast array of world-class shopping and dining venues, as well as a host of facilities and amenities for both tourists and business travellers. Check-in, baggage claims, immigrations, customs and security are generally smooth and painless; however, like most international airports, standard airport processes can slow down during peak times.

In essence, Sydney Airport is clean, efficient and well maintained. Better yet, transport to and from the airport is abundant and therefore makes this airport an ideal gateway for those travelling to Sydney and surrounds.
